  • Students must copy their main financial aid award page from Banner documenting all sources of financial assistance by Lamar Go to Banner Self Serve Financial Aid.
  • Students meeting the GPA requirements will be notified of their eligibility via email and given an application.
  • Scholarship students are invited and expected to attend the scholarship dinner each spring hosted by Lamar University.

Paid Stipends

We also have three paid stipends (5,000) with Child Protective Services. This requires a student to take child welfare policy and apply in their junior year for a summer block placement (see Title IV information).
